Sound & music stimulates the hearing mechanism and the cranial bones. Bone conduction & vibration produce a corresponding movement through all systems of the body and at all levels...

...remember those 'musical thrills' tingling down your spine?

What makes INNER SOUND unique?


Composer & Sound Therapist Arden Wilken began creating music for individuals in 1978 to support them during periods of transition, creativity, personal development, illness and short or long-term stress.

Through her investigations composing thousands of unique Personal Music's, Arden identified over 50 short melodies or musical phrases with specific effects that promote movement and restore balance in different systems of the body, simultaneously releasing & resolving tensions relating to a wide range of emotional themes.

Jack Wilken developed Spectrum Sound Resonance System - a range of psychoacoustic effects that significantly enhance the effectiveness of this sound healing system.

During the past 40 years, INNER SOUND has become a versatile and extensive healing method based on the INNER SOUND motifs. These specific melodies & rhythmic patterns create change on a mental, emotional, physical and energetic basis. (For more information about how sound heals, read their article 'Sonic Pathways')

You can play INNER SOUND motifs as 'pure' sound in sequences of pairs of tuning forks that are placed near the ears; you can listen to them in musical recordings enhanced with psychoacoustic effects; or you can learn to sing them using simple exercises to help enhance & integrate their movement as you do.
